Distemper virus affects wild carnivores of all stripes

Tigers, lions and other , already under threat from poaching and habitat loss, are falling victim to a that could soon drive endangered populations to extinction.

Canine strikes wild of all , including Amur tigers, — also called Siberian tigers — which roam the Russian Far East in ever-dwindling numbers.

Scientists from the Wildlife Conservation Society, Cornell and the University of Glasgow are urging swift action to address the crisis by developing control measures for the , such as delivering a vaccine that is safe for these animals. They also suggest renaming canine distemper to reflect the wide range of animals that can carry the virus and suffer from the disease.

“These small endangered populations of face a lot of threats, but distemper can be the straw that breaks the camel’s back in terms of their survival,” said , a virologist and director of the .

Parrish said Amur tigers are under particular threat because they number in the hundreds and many live in sub-populations of fewer than 25 breeding adults. Between 2007 and 2012, canine distemper contributed to the decline of one well-studied population of Amur tigers from 38 to only 9, a reduction the group may not be able to recover from, Parrish said. Similarly, more than 1,000 lions in the Serengeti National Park disappeared in an outbreak of distemper that began in 1993 — a population decline of about 30 percent.

Studies show that in many cases, are not contracting the distemper directly from domestic , but they are getting it from other wild animals that act as intermediaries. This makes controlling the virus exceedingly difficult, Parrish said, and efforts to vaccinate dogs or other

    My Dog’s Favorite- and Amazon’s the Place to Get Them!, March 4, 2010
    April Blake (Genesee, PA) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    My German Shepherd is a complete Greenie addict. She knows when they’re in the house. She knows which cupboard they’re kept in. She knows what time of day she’s supposed to get hers. Her vet compliments her on her pretty white teeth, although some of that credit definitely has to go to the fact that my husband and I brush her teeth with one of those finger-toothbrushes and kiddie toothpaste (no fluoride, so safe if she swallows it), but I do know my dog chews a Greenie at least enough to get pieces between her teeth, and at four years old, she doesn’t have the kind of doggie breath that knocks you over if she breathes in your face. I do believe that some of the ingredients in Greenies help breath from within, so even if your dog inhales his or her Greenie, there’s still some benefit.

    My only complaint about Greenies is that they’re expensive. There’s no denying that. If you do the math on this tub of 17, we’re talking about a dollar and forty-seven cents apiece. So I can see why that might stop some people in their tracks, and I understand. As for my dog, she’s on a limited diet because she’s allergic to a lot of things that are standard ingredients in a lot of dog food and dog treats. I feel like I’ve been a little bit trained myself, not to bat an eye at this price, and she definitely makes me at least a dollar and a half’s worth of happy every day.

    If you’re looking at the Greenies in the 17-piece tub, considering them for purchase, though, I’m guessing your canine is also a Greenie addict, like mine. You’re going to buy them anyway, and if you get the free shipping, Amazon’s the place to get them.

    Check Contents First, October 8, 2012

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    Half way through the supply, I noticed that there were tiny white worms boring through a greenie so I checked the remaining greenies and they also had worms. Please empty the contents of the box and check the greenies when you receive your order before giving them to your dog. This may have been an isolated incident but it would only take a few minutes to check the contents for freshness.

    Our Dogs LOVE These and We Do Too!, August 3, 2008
    J. Intlehouse “Star’s Mom” (Richmond, VA USA) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Greenies Dental Chews for Dogs, Regular, Pack of 27 (Misc.)
    I have been feeding our dogs Greenie bones since they first came out and we have NEVER had a problem. I have German Shepards, Dobermans and medium sized hound dogs. They all love their GB’s and I find that because our Dobie tends to be a “garbage belly” (meaning she’ll eat anything!), so sometimes she doesn’t smell as nice as she should, really benefits from the “green” in Greenie Bones. I would like to know where “E. Antic” gets his/her information from…..as I can find nothing that says they are “deadly”, except for those people that haven’t done responsible research (not just hearsay from some list). If your dogs are gulpers or greedy chewers, then I wouldn’t feed them ANYTHING, especially RAWHIDE, that could be gulped and swallowed in large pieces or whole. Do we need to bring up “NYLABONES”????? Always be a responsible dog owner and supervise your dogs when giving any kind of treats. Please don’t be afraid of Greenie Bones because of E. Antic’s post. You can buy Greenie’s in singles, so try one before you commit to a whole box. I have friends that have dogs that don’t really like them and that’s okay. My girls live for their morning GB’s and I now give them Greenie “Smart Biscuits” for an afternoon snack. They love the taste and we love them for the ‘benefits’!!

    I respectfully request that Amazon and Amazon members make up their own minds, and not fall to the ‘fear mongers’ and ignorance amoung us. Always supervise your dogs when giving treats – after all, they are the animals and we are supposed to be the ‘smart’ ones…..don’t be afraid, do your homework, it always pays!

    Aparece ali “Explosivo Hackeado”, PQP, eles devem carregar algum explosivo
    ativado por controle remoto que o Aiden consegue hackear e consequentemente
    explodir… Sem brincadeira, quase todo Youtuber que faz vídeos de Watch
    Dogs não consegue entender esse processo.

    Watch Dogs é bugadaço, chega ser uma vergonha a quantidade de bug que esse
    jogo tem. Nem impacto de tiro na água ele tem e o realismo é horrível. Além
    de que os gráficos, inclusive das cutscenes e as dublagens estão muito
    ruins mesmo, visivelmente ruins. Ubisoft deu um tiro no pé

    Azaghâl, aquilo q explode no bolos dos caras é o celular deles. Isto é algo
    raro de acontecer, mas é possível explodir nossos celulares, geralmente por
    superaquecimento da bateria. O que o Aiden provavelmente fez foi hackear o
    celular deles e sobrecarregar suas baterias, fazendo eles explodirem.

    Sinceramente não entendo o que o povo tanto vê nesse jogo, só mais uma
    porcaria de GTA, só que dessa vez com um super celular ridículo, que
    controla empilhadeiras, batedeiras, granadas, faz aparelhos eletrônicos
    explodirem sem razão alguma, etc.
